I’m honored to be giving a talk to the NYC Sierra Club Photography Committee this evening at Lincoln Center in Manhattan. I’ve been a member of the Sierra Club for years, and support their mission and goals in terms of conservation and alternative energy. It was a great surprise to be invited to speak their photo cub-chapter last year at the 2011 Photo Plus expo, but due to scheduling issues, I haven’t been able to actually make it happen until now, a year later.

They’ve actually had some really amazing photographers as speakers, including Ruth Orkin, Jay Maisel , Robert Glenn Ketchum, John Paul Caponigro, Jon Ortner, and Steve McCurry, so I’m fairly intimidated to say the least. But like everything else in life, the best approach is to be yourself and bring whatever unique qualities you can to any situation. I’ve given that bit of advice many times, so it’s only natural I should adopt it myself, which is what I’ll do tonight.

Thank you to the Sierra Club and also to all of you for the support to be able to do what I do, and share it as well – that is a true privilege.

  1. Congratulations!!! I’ve been following your work for more than a year now so please pardon the none-introduction. Your art is truly inspiring and it is always great to know someone within the ‘Mid-Hud’ region is being recognized.

    1. Thanks David – it’s always a privilege to speak to others about photography and share my passion for nature and conservation…it helps me remember why I love what I do.


  2. I had the opportunity to hear and see Robert’s Sierra Club presentation at Lincoln Center last night. It was insightful and inspiring! I was particularly touched by the images of some of my favorite places in the Hudson Highlands, Gunks and Daks, seeing them through the eyes of a tremendously gifted and articulate artist. Thanks, Robert!

    1. Hi Christiane, thanks so much for the kind words, I really appreciate it and it was an honor to speak to the club and share my passion and work. Glad it was of benefit to you.
